Cut to Random East L.A. joint. Probably an hour has passed, but this is the first time Gedrick and Ray have spoken to each other since, I guess, because Gedrick finally asks, "If everybody's in the hunt, why are we here?" Ray says they're going to set up a meeting with The Pope. Just stay with me. Nothing makes sense for a while, and then we just move on. Ray tells Gedrick a story about the time Chronic found out he had a snitch.
Cut to "Big-Ass House Party." Flashback film. Chronic has thrown this party for the snitch, who has no idea he's been found out. Ray runs down a list of clichéd gangsta foods, including the "ice chest of malt liquor," as if anyone with real bling-bling would actually be using a cooler. Ray says the snitch is eating and drinking like there's no tomorrow. "He smells like a neckbone," Ray says. If any of you know what that means, please email me. Anyway, in the back yard, Chronic releases his dogs on him. But Ray says this in a way that was obviously censored by the network. He says that the snitch was expecting something from Chronic's ladies. "He got something, all right," he says. "Only of the four-legged variety." It's 2003. We can handle the various meanings of the word "bitch." Just say the joke. The snitch's leg is ripped up in ten minutes, down to the bone, Ray says. We see Chronic watching, puffing a blunt, smiling. You can't get the death penalty for a dog ripping up a leg, can you? "Dog and his bone," Gedrick says. "You better believe it," Ray says. "Chronic never lets a debt go. He always collects." Now they're just trading tagline for Stallone movies back and forth. Ray sees a kid running down the empty East L.A. street. You know, I've only lived in this town for a couple of years, but I've yet to see an empty street on the east side. Ray gets up to follow the kid. It sounds like he says he's going to get a puppet.
Pool hall. Ray and Gedrick pull the kid away from a videogame. His name is Puppet. Ah, not "a puppet." Got it. He's got a cigarette tucked behind his ear. He's probably eleven. Ray picks Puppet up and plops him on a pool table, asking him how they're hanging. Puppet tries to leave, but Ray and Gedrick, keep him detained. Ray wishes Puppet a happy fourteenth birthday. Puppet says his birthday was last week. Ray says he's going to put his hand in Puppet's pocket, pull out some meth, and put Puppet away for a long time. Ray grabs the kid's ankle and starts twisting him. Puppet rolls on his back and screams that the cops are molesting him. Ray finds what he's looking for. Puppet tries to leave again. Gedrick and Ray keep him still. Ray says he wants "an audience with the Pope."
